Occupy Wallstreet was just the beginning of a movement to demand civil rights. The right to organize and build a compassionate society. The right to peacefully assemble is a core civil right outlined in the constitution. Human beings needs are simple and DO NOT need to be provided by major corporations. We have the ability to provide for ourselves in a sustainable way. How able we are to secure food, clothing and shelter is only limited by our willingness. When authorities attempt to stop individuals from expressing their beliefs the only choice is to not remain silent.
A movement that serves an example of what our society should be was treated by the FBI/DHS as terrorism. Newly freedom of information released documents, show how the community based camps were removed. Peaceful society has been classified as a threat. It is merely a threat to business as usual. Policies of true degradation, destruction and militant domination. Community organizing does place pressure upon big business interests. Independence from the global corporations traded on wallstreet will change the power structure. This challenges the assumptions about what law enforcement has been turned into. Providing peace and security for ourselves is more important than the economic interests the agencies work to protect.
Violence against citizens is well documented. Copwatch organizations are a line of defense against law breakers who abuse their authority. A badge does not grant the power to suppress civil liberties. As in 1984, the proverbial boots are upon the neck of humanity. As we reach the four year anniversary since the murder of Oscar Grant in Oakland California the big questions still remain. The killing was captured on video and the officer found guilty but not treated as a murderer. Do people still have constitutional rights in the U.S.? Who will uncover the systematic assault if not individuals with cameras? Why is corporate power allowed to dominate the planet?
These videos show a glimpse of the amazing spirit of an encampment that was attacked violently by police. After being tear gassed, property destroyed and campers arrested a community blossomed once again. We have the ability to opt out of oppressive society and ensure tranquility. To not support each other would be anti-social. The people have spoken.

Watch the People and Power episode: Death of the Dollar video.
How much longer can the US dollar serve as the world reserve currency? The value has gone down 1/3 in the last few years. Many say the invasion of Iraq was an attempt to prevent the rise of the Euro in the middle east. Nearly ten years after the Bush administration defied the U.N. to start the war, has the collapse of the dollar finally come home to roost? Oil producers have the more leverage over their national resources and the currency is on the brink of demise. Greenbacks you will be missed--by the bankers who exploited you.
